But which peak is Mt. Everest? They all look pretty similar.

I would presume the tallest one

I once saw Nanga Parbat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanga_Parbat) in real life from about 40 kms away and it was such a belittling feeling that words cannot describe it

I cant even begin to imagine what feelings are invoked in a person who sees K2 or Everest for the first time!

I used to do some amateur rock climbing at a hill near where I last lived and used to wonder what sort of people climb these big ones! It is a different breed of man/woman who go up against these behemoths!

Well, as someone who can barely look over the balcony (let alone climb a three metre ladder which is needed to replace some light bulbs) without feeling queasy I'm quite happy being able to explore the Himalayas around Mount Everest from the comfort of my armchair and trying to work out out exactly how the interactive bit works. Probably not helped by the glass of grape in my hand at the moment ...

But who cares ... Merry Christmas everyone
